Bayern Munich To Bid €100m For Harry Kane
Bayern Munich is set to step up their pursuit of Harry Kane, the forward for Tottenham Hotspur and the England national team. The Bavarian club sees Kane as the perfect replacement for Robert Lewandowski, who was sold to Barcelona last year.
Tottenham has already turned down two offers of €70 million and €80 million from the Bundesliga champions. Kane expressed his willingness to join the German club, to play under the guidance of Thomas Tuchel at the Allianz Arena. He has reportedly informed Tuchel that he would only consider a move to Bayern if he leaves North London. Kane is currently in the final year of his contract with Tottenham, which adds urgency to the situation.
According to reports, Tuchel intends to reintroduce Bayern's renowned 4-2-3-1 formation with Kane leading the attack. For Kane, a move to Munich represents an ideal environment to further enhance his list of achievements. While playing for Tottenham, the English captain has only won the 2018 International Champions Cup and the 2019 Audi Cup.
Bayern Munich's perspective on the matter is clear - it's Kane or nothing this summer. The club's management is reportedly planning to make an offer of between €90 million and €95 million for the highly sought-after striker. In an unprecedented move, the Rekordmeister is even prepared to break the €100 million barrier for Kane, demonstrating the extent of their desire to secure his services. Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, who recently returned to the Bayern board, is said to be putting in significant effort to persuade Daniel Levy, the chairman of Tottenham, to allow Kane to move abroad.
In a scheduled meeting with Ange Postecoglou, the manager of Tottenham, Kane will discuss his options and express his openness to all possibilities. Despite the strong interest from Bayern, who have faced two rejections from Spurs, Kane will approach the talks with Postecoglou with an open mind. Ultimately, the final decision may rest with Kane himself.
Kane finds himself in a position of power. Even if Bayern fails to reach an agreement with Tottenham during this transfer window, the striker knows that he can leave as a free agent next year, opening up opportunities with numerous top clubs across Europe.
What should be of concern to Bayern Munich fans, is that Kane will not demand a move but rather let the two clubs negotiate. If he does end up transferring to Bayern Munich, it would be a great outcome. If he remains with Tottenham Hotspur and fulfills his contract, thereby approaching free agency, it would be even better. Alternatively, if he doesn't move during the summer transfer window and Tottenham Hotspur offers him an overpriced contract to avoid losing a club legend who is on the verge of breaking the Premier League goal-scoring record, it would be the best scenario for Kane.
In any case, Kane stands to benefit from each of these scenarios and has positioned himself to make the most advantageous decision for his career.
